Home at Last

We are now home and are taking care of Tito as he heals. His eye is still very red and it is discharging what looks like blood. At the sight of this, we became worried, but were reassured that it is normal. It is normal to shed bloody tears after what he gone through, it is a metaphor for the struggles that Tito has had to endure.

He is also very happy. Coming home to the familiar after his stay at the hospital brought him a deep joy. He squealed at the site of his crib, at his bouncer, at sight and smells of home. Remarkable.

The grandeur of life is in the living. In the act of taking delight in the familiar and even in shedding of tears of blood.

Tito has brought of us joy as well even in the middle of his medical trials. His love never wavered. I wonder if that is why Jesus called us to be like children.

The masters of living are those people where living means being a beginner, seeing all as if seeing it for the first time.

From oldgreyman, I posted to your addition on sojo.net, and came to read more of your blog. I was touched by the Tito's story.

My wife and I went through a similar situation with our youngest daughter many, many years ago. She is now a beautiful young woman with a bright future in front of her. While there were so many struggles and dark times when she was an infant, toddler and young girl, God blessed her with the heart of a lion. I know He has done the same for your son. Every day is a blessing, every obstacle a prelude to triumph and every accomplishment a wonderful gift from God.

God bless you, your wife and your beautiful son.

Lace and Big Tito--

We are keeping you especially in our thoughts and prayers during these days of Baby Tito's recuperation from his major surgery. May God's peace and the caring of Christian friends be a special encouragement and source of strength to you.

In Christ,

Oldgreyman,

Thank you so much for your kind words of hope. Your experience with your daughter is inspiring. Through all of this I have found that Baby Tito has been such a gift. He has been my teacher in too the meaning of faith, just like Jesus said.

Tito and Lace, your baby boy is an amazing and wonderful little person. I know he is a source of inspiration to you, but I want you to know that he is to me as well. All of you continue to have a place in my prayers. God's blessing be on all three of you.
Much love,
